Overview

Relax and unwind at this striking 16th-century coaching inn and adjoining Elizabethan manor house, nestled in a sleepy village set in glorious Peak District countryside. Following an invigorating local walk, beat a path to the door of the Old Hall Inn and soak up the atmosphere in the rambling and rustic interior over a locally brewed ale or a glass of something special.

Recently refurbished, the inn has lost none of its original charm and character - expect old flagstones, stone mullion windows, roaring fires and an impressive minstrel's gallery in the old hall dining room. Under the same ownership as the Paper Mill Inn across the road.
